It is always nice to go out and eat, but it can turn into and expensive luxury , so we often cook at home. I like to prepare home cooked meals for my family even though I am the dad.
Home cooking can save a family a bunch of money.There are many inexpensive delicious meals you can prepare at home.
So my answer is, I love taking my family out to eat, but a practical head of household realizes that on a fixed income it is necessary to cook at home.
For ten dollars you can buy a large pack of pork ribs, put some barbeque sauce on them, and cook them even in your microwave if you put them in a caserole bowl, and cover your bowl with a dish.
Three people can eat half those ribs, and cook the other half another day, and fill up.
What do good restaurant meals cost ? That usually costs me between thirty, and fifty dollars because you know your also going to hand over a five dollar tip to a waitress , or waiter .
With thirty dollars, or fifty dollars you could buy the best steak, or enough ham to last half of a month. If you like chicken, you can buy and awfil lot of that, and cook it yourself.
Thank you for the question. I hope I saved you some money. God Bless You.
